Academy of Cleaning Excellence – Expert Class

Today’s Floor Care Expert Class Location – Lakeland, FL.

  • What can save my operation 40% of the normal floor finish I use to maintain VCT floors?
  • What can help keep 90% of dry soil from my polished floor surfaces?
  • How much should I invest to make more profit on my floor care services?

Samuel Sr. and his son Sam, said that they invested in this day of education to learn how to make more money for the work they do.  Sam said that he has not spent this much time sitting, not working and so happy to do so, that he will be coming to other A.C.E. Academy of Cleaning Excellence classes in 2017.

Both men walked out with their new certificates and smiles on their faces with answers to questions they didn’t even know they were going to ask.

  • What do you want to learn?
  • Come to a class and ask your questions.  You can’t get an answer any other way.
